and the first flames flakes starting to fly up around new york. and d.c. has a chance of beeting all beatingall north side and records, and philadelphia as well and perhaps new york. this is not just an event for tonight and tomorrow and tomorrow afternoon, it will be on-going right into tomorrow night, not until nome night, early sunday morning that things really start to wrap up and by the time it's all said and done, perhaps 16-24 inches in roanoke and the biggest snowfall totals just north of that, d.c., 24 to 30 inches and some folks north and west end up with more than
harrisburg, 12-18 and philly 18-24, but with the latest models pouring in that may be a conservative estimate, no doubt causing huge travel headaches across the east coast and it's the wind gusts out there, up and down the coastline, 30, 40, even at times 50 miles per hour. this nor'easter is really going to get going tomorrow, cranking region. and so a huge blizzard for them and on the south side, we get the cold air pouring in and the wind gusts and that means a cold and chilly gasparilla that day. >> thousands of travelers hoping to fly out of tia are instead going to be spending the weekend here. several major airports suspended service at least until sunday and others are dealing with

out of tampa will be canceled for tomorrow. again, most of those coming from the d.c. area, baltimore, and philly, charlotte douglas close right now because of ice. and we found a lot of people waiting on relatives to arrive and several had to wait for hours. this woman is worry buendia worried about what she is going to return tomorrow to if they gets to return home. >> i'm worried about the wet snow and wind and that meaning the power lines go out and then there is no heat in the house. >> my brother is coming down from rhode island and he had to stop in philly and looks like he is delayed. they were supposed to drive back with a vehicle to new york on saturday and i don't think that is going to happen. >> i just checked again, and 42 flights tomorrow out of tia are cancel and so best advice for travelers just check with your
because there are delays at hub airports all over the cup because of what is happening on the east coast. airports in washington, d.c. and baltimore are hoping to resume service by noon sunday, we'll have to see if that holds and most airlines are waives the rebooking fees for travelers. >> and we had to show you this powerfullismage powerful image from arlington. while most of the population hunkered down there was a soldier on duty at the tomb of the unknowns. and this storm is not expected to wrap up until tomorrow night. the snow is really picking up. two feet of snow, and that is a lot of snow. is the city prepared for that? >> i will tell you what, chris

it caused plays with just half an inch of snow on the ground and today they are salts and plowing the roads but imagine what 30 inches of snow could do to the nation's capital. >> we see this with hurricanes a lot, people want to get out and see what is happening but with the snow this is not a good time for them to be out and about. are people cooperating? home. >> you get tourists who want to take photos but to use the old news cliche, your director may be upset with me, but it's a bit of a ghost downtown town down here. it's cold and windy and a little bit wet and you don't want to be out here in the first place and so the best thing to do is stay indoors and stay safe.

building through the afternoon and evening. the wind wind wind gusts occasionally above miles per hour, 30 miles per hour, and i would not be surprised if they were not seeing 4, 5, 6, 7 feet or so on the waves. all of these quick-moving showers don't make it inland very far, mainly those seeing rain tonight are west of 75,. the weather headlines for the headline is the wind. and so very, very windy. we are talking about gusts above 30 miles per hour, and inland as well, gusting up to 40, with that gale warning. yeah, gale-force gusts gusts especially offshore meaning waves at 11 to 1414
adjust that because i'm seeing some up to 15 feet, the bay itself, very, very rough waters and at the beaches, high surf and rip currents. the good news is not that many folks want to go swim whg ming when the water temperatures are 50 degrees like they are right now. and as i mention thrd are ed there are a couple of 15-foot waveheights off shore and you don't have to head too far to see waveheights of 7 to 8 feet, and in fact you can extend this down to southeasta key and ana maria island as well, and that is why the bay itself will be very rough. wind gusts gusting mainly right now near the coasts up to 30 and that spreads inland for tomorrow. this is the forecast and this is
shows winds gusting above 30 miles per hour, at times into tomorrow morning and right into tomorrow afternoon, and you imagine 4:00 tomorrow, and you have gusts stating 20 po 30 miles per to 30miles per hour, and temperatures dipping into the 40's, winds still gusting to 30, and so just one of those chilly days. certainly plan ahead, and here is a look at your forecast for the day. 53, hanging in the low 50's all day and there is the pyrotech neck extravaganza. 71 the high, and 60 the low, current temperature hitting at 61, dewpoint of 50, so it's not all that cold but if you step outside t feels chilly, the reason being the wind out of the west at 16 and gusting to 28, and other temperatures around the area, mid to
the north and mid to upper 50's along the coast and that wind is going to help drive in colder air for tomorrow. for the day tomorrow, an early shower, otherwise just cold, windy, variable clouds and 54, and then comes the coldest night of the season. 60 degrees for sunday and sunday we lose the breeze. back into the mid to upper 60's and then low 70's for tuesday and wednesday, the next shot at rain arriving wednesday and thursday. >> mike, thanks.
